It works for me (TM).

There are many problems with "cautorized" repositories, some with the
current implementation, some more fundamental ones.  Such as what is
the cut-off criterium?  The MIPS git repository also contains the objects
of Linus's tree [1].  So a tag like linux-2.6.15 as the line for truncation
isn't working too well because I'll only truncate the Linux/MIPS history
but that'll still leave all of Linus's tree - well over 130,000 objects -
in the tree.

Anyway, I'm trying to maintain a homebrew shallow variant of the tree
for the time being until git provides a better instrument for the job.


[1] Not Linus's tags to avoid confusion.  They could easily be pulled from
    Linus tree into a separate branch.  Similar for Marcelo's 2.4 tree.
